    Parent Account


    For some reason, even though I do not require a parent account, there is one linked to my Xbox live account. The thing is, the parental account somehow belongs to my brother's email that hasn't been active for about two years. Because of this I can't download
    updates for Xbox and i can't connect to Xbox live. Does anyone know how to solve this? Much appreciated.

    :)

    Unfortunately each account needs to be signed in; however you can always let him play on a guest account instead. You can set parental controls on a guest account as well; we actually have a guide for it here: Guest Restrictions

  4. Parent Account

    Hello Blood samuri666,

    If you have recently become the age of majority you will need to promote your account.

    Age is determined by the date of birth on the Xbox Live account. Once a person turns 18, he or she can follow the steps here to promote their account.

    Promote Child to Adult | Xbox Live Account - Xbox.com

    Hope this helps, Please post back to let us know how you made out.

    is there a way to view the parental account that is associated with mine? because every time i enter the parental account i get "PARENTAL APPROVAL REQUIRED

    That's not the parent associated with your account. The parent listed on your account will need to sign in with their Microsoft account email." i might be entering the wrong account.

    Need answered question.

    There is an option on the Parent Account to remove a child from the parent account, but I'm not sure of a way to attach it to a different parent account.

    How do you add children to your account?

    A child account needs a parental account associated with it. Just follow the instructions to add the parental account (it usually asks for the email info of the parent).

    Hi there,

    if the account creating settings have been 'locked' by a parental account then that parental account needs to unlock that option.

    Wrong password could be the cause. To be sure have the parental account owner log into their account at xbox.com and or account.microsoft.com.

    If the parental account settings are unknown then please have the parental account owner try and recover the account settings via:

    https://support.xbox.com/my-account/microsoft-account/forgot-microsoft-account-solution


    Something that could be tried is sign out of the Child account and then signing in with the Parental account itself (assuming the parental account is still present)

    Let us know the results
